Meet the Counselors

Counseling Team Staff

It can be difficult to admit that you need help in your life, and we applaud you in taking this brave step. We hope that the counselor you connect with will help you walk through the issue you have chosen to address.

Below you will find a list of counselors who are taking new clients, what campuses they serve at, and a link to their bio as well as what areas they work in and techniques implemented in their counseling. As a church-based counseling center we do practice from a Christian/Biblical foundation. This may include but is not limited to the use of Scripture, prayer, and other Christian thoughts/practices in session. Our goal is to provide you Biblically based, clinically competent, Spirit-sensitive counseling.
